PROJECT TYPE: Federal/State Agency Waterfront

Liberty State Park Bulkhead Repair

City of Jersey City, Hudson County, NJ

Designed revetment rock slope stabilization and walkway improvements in keeping with the “Hudson River Waterfront Walkway” standards, to replace the failed walkway section. The complete project scope consisted of removing deteriorated bulkhead and 18,000 tons of historic fill and replacement of revetment rock slope; steel bulkhead; concrete cap; railing; paver walkway; lighting; amenities; earthwork; landscaping; and various site improvements.

In addition, structural and civil engineering services were provided for the design of approximately 1,150 LF of waterfront stabilization and walkway. Through wave modeling, revetment rock slope stabilization was designed to provide superior wave energy dissipation that also has minimal impact on the marine environment. The project team obtained the appropriate marine permits through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE), as required.
